Live Life the Kenya way...All welcome!

Kenyaways is the original kite village in Kenya. It was founded in 2008, by Linzi Kennaway, one of the pioneers of Kenya kite surfing, who recognised the need for a go to place for kite surfers to have convenience and meet like minded beach addicts. Of course we also welcome everyone, not only kiters, but anyone in search of a rustic, barefoot, homely environment for their beach vacation.

The proximity to the beach and the unbeatable set up of kite school, restaurant and accommodation in one beautiful spot is why this is the ultimate kite holiday destination. Here at Kenyaways, life is beyond relaxing…it’s friendly, a great vibe and provides an excellent service.  Located on the pristine, tropical lagoon of Diani beach, Kenya's most beautiful beach, is Kenyaways. Diani Beach is Africa’s Award Winning Beach, the 5 years in a row winner. The kite village consists of a quaint guesthouse right on the beach which feels more like a family home than a hotel, a beach bar restaurant, and the kite school.

Enjoy the casual, laid-back, barefoot lifestyle of the Kenyan coast and escape into a totally relaxed beach holiday. Here you will discover the true meaning of "Hakuna Matata" ...No worries.

Kenyaways is the ideal spot to soak up the sun, do plenty of swimming and water sports, and is notorious for its kitesurfing spot. Galu Beach is the gem of the Kenyan coast,  with wide unspoilt, uncrowded beaches. It is not far from Tsavo East National Park and has a direct flight to Masai Mara where you are bound to have the safari of a lifetime. 

The property used to be the Kennaway family home which was originally built in the 1950’s by Linzi’s dad. In those days there was no road to the property and was only accessible by boat. Linzi’s dad started the first diving school in Diani and ran his trips from here. The name Kenyaways is a play on the names Kenya and Kennaway.
